  • Call poison control and get some guidelines. They will ask you some questions and tell you based on how much they think he ingested.

    You can also page your pediatrician.

    You should get some professioanl guidance, however, on this.

  • If it'll make you feel better call cafe mom. My son used to do this all of the time. I had the hand sanitizers from Bath & Body Works on one of the lil things that you can put them in and hang from your purse and he would always get mine and try to eat it. He was always fine though.

  • My son did that when he was younger also what I did was called Poison Control and they told me to give him a small snack and a glass of milk and just keep my eye on him and that he may get a little bit of a tummy ache.

  • Yes it is harmful! It is gelled alcohol. He can get alcohol poisoning. Hand sanitizers are completely unnecessary. They do more harm than good. Throw it away & wash your hands instead.
